Meet Roxy! This sweet pup was found with her brother wandering around in a yard in Georgia with no mama in sight. They were nothing but skin and bones. Since then, both pups have made an amazing turnaround. Roxy remains extremely shy and really needs another confident canine sibling to show her the ropes, so she can understand that the world is not such a bad place where humans can be trusted. She loves to cuddle and give kisses. Roxy listens very well- I never have to repeat any commands. Roxy is a very intelligent, loving, and sweet pup.
Foster update: Roxy gets along great with Piper (foster sibling) but does not like cats (absolutely not). We haven't run into any escape issues :) Rox is crate trained and fully house broken- not one accident! She is low energy inside the house but loves to run around in the back yard like a crazy woman- and boy she is fast!
Before adopting a puppy, please assess the amount of time you have to provide your puppy with proper house-training, crate-training, obedience training, love, socialization and, frequent potty breaks. K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new puppy into group obedience to ensure the puppy is well socialized and properly trained.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64.
